ICCA12 — 12th International Conference on Clifford Algebras and Their Applications in Mathematical Physics
03 Aug 2020 - 07 Aug 2020 • Hefei, Anhui, China
Organizer:
University of Science and Technology of China (USTC)
Abstract:
This conference is the next edition in a long line of conferences starting in 1986 at the University of Canterbury, UK. This series of international conferences aims at bringing together leading scientists and young researchers in the field of Clifford algebras and their various applications in mathematics, physics, engineering and other applied sciences. The English mathematician and philosopher William Kingdon Clifford (1845-1879) is best remembered for his geometric algebras, nowadays better known in mathematics as Clifford algebras, named so in his honour, but he also contributed significantly to other branches of mathematics, especially geometry.

Workshop — Geometry and Physics of Quantum Toroidal Algebra
06 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The theories of rational/trigonometric/elliptic functions were developed as functions over plane/cylinder/torus, respectively, before the 20th century. Among them, the theory of elliptic functions is most interesting, and it can be understood as the parent theory of the rest. During the 20th century, the same rational/trigonometric/elliptic trichotomy has been also found in integrable systems, algebras and cohomology groups. Like the theory of functions, recent development reveals that the relationship among integrable system, algebra, geometry, and physics becomes most profound at elliptic level. In particular, Lie algebras (rational) are promoted to affine Lie algebras (trigonometric) and toroidal Lie algebras (elliptic). The workshop aims at investigating quantum versions of toroidal Lie algebras, called quantum toroidal algebras.

Workshop — Modular Forms in Number Theory and Physics
20 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Modular forms have been one of the central topics in number theory for more a century and they continue to experience a wide range of applications throughout mathematics nowadays. Different incarnations of modularity, known as quasi-modular forms, quantum modular forms, Jacobi forms and Siegel modular forms regularly show up in physics topics such as mirror symmetry, topological quantum field theory, Gromov-Witten invariants, conformal field theory, Calabi-Yau manifolds. The principal goal of the proposed conference is to assess the role of various modular forms in recent developments in number theory, geometry and string theory.

Workshop — Nonlocal Problems in Mathematical Physics, Analysis and Geometry
08 Nov 2020 - 13 Nov 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Nonlinear problems are problems which solutions satisfy an equation where the different physical constants involved are depending on the solution itself. This dependence can be nonlocal in the sense that it depends on the solution globally. For instance the motion of a population can be influenced by the total population and not only by the population very locally. One of the goals of the workshop is to deepen the human knowledge in this field applied to different situations.
